H.H. Pope Shenouda III offered this set as a gift to the Library of Alexandria during his first visit in February 23th, 2003. The foundation, under the leadership of H.H Pope Shenouda III, made a set of 16 CDs that includes 360,000 titles and 760,000 pages of Coptic manuscripts selected from 40% of manuscripts that exist outside Egypt.

These manuscripts have been completely restored. The project was funded and supervised by Saint Mark Foundation
